Information about the Order

The Masonic and Military Order of the Red Cross of Constantine (and the Orders of the Holy Sepulchre and of St.John the Evangalist which are appended thereto) is an order of Freemasonry, open to all Royal Arch Companions who hold and profess a belief in the Christian Trinitarian Faith.

The Order commemorates the miraculous Conversion to the Christian faith of the great Roman Emperor Constantine after his glorious victory in the battle of Saxa Rubra and the Milvian Bridge in the year AD 312, and the impact that his conversion had on the further development and global spread of the Christian religion.
The Orders of the Holy Sepulchre and of St. John the Evangalist – usually referred to as “Appendant Orders” – commemorate the Crucifixion and the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, and interpret both Craft and Royal Arch Masonry in a Christian context.

The Order, although deriving much of its rich symbolism from Anglican Christian usage and customs is non-denominational and is open to all Christian Royal Arch masons in good standing who profess a sincere belief in the Trinity-in-Unity and who desire to expand their Masonic knowledge in a New Testament setting.
